Over 680 trackers and options for one webpage. "Accept all" or open each single item from a dropdown to opt-out. This is insane.
This is the worst cookie permissions menu I've seen. You can't tell what is turned on and what is off. The default when the menu opens up is the top three, with off in gray. When you click on off, you see both off and on without a gray filter. So is this on or off?

Impressed with this bug! #DarkUX This is a license purchase dialog for a software. Pay close attention to the UX: User looks at the price £2.50. Goes to Lifetime License. New price is £29.99. Animation brings out an input. User attention shifts to completing the transaction.
How can a user unsubscribe from all mail? The page is very unclear and the user should be able to select multiple options.
